Dexter, pref. to ed. of 1865. "In 1825 I published a small edition of this history, containing however but few additions to the old, which being immediately taken up, occasioned the early appearance of this ... From the present appearance of the work, its former erroneous composition is too easily discovered."--Editor's pref. Front. "Landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth."
